Season 9 Synopsis
The blunt-talking, politically incorrect Andy Dalziel once again pairs up with his younger, fast-tracked side-kick, Inspector Peter Pascoe, for a crime-solving marriage of opposites.
Four more murder mysteries take the duo from a private zoo, where they unearth a possible organ-trafficking racket, to a community hospital, where patients are dying and staff are being attacked.
Meanwhile, crimes of passion and chance occurrences bring a past murder case back to haunt Dalziel.
